Middle Cove

The owners of this home have a passion for architecture, but with busy lives and an overwhelming amount of decisions needing to be made, they hired Robyn to walk alongside them every step of the way.

Together; every room, every finish, every colour, fixture, fitting and cabinetry drawing was discussed and specified. It gave the owners peace of mind and confidence in their decision making and also allowed them to remove themselves from the sourcing process.

Robyn’s colour and design advice touched on every corner of this home; from the cobblestones on the driveway, to the door handles, lighting, carpet, paint, timber flooring, blinds, kitchen & bathroom fitouts, structural posts, exterior finishes, outdoor BBQ and bespoke joinery to the tiles lining the pool.

The project was well considered at every turn. As each construction phase evolved, so did the overall design and detailing. There were changes, additions and deletions the whole way through.

Construction took longer than anticipated and the clients had extensive travel plans booked so Robyn became their proxy while they enjoyed their time overseas. As Robyn project managed and liaised with the builders, she communicated sporadically with the client via email and phone. Upon their return, they found the house almost ready for them to move in.
It was such a delight to see this project finished but there was also some sadness in its completion because of the time, effort and emotion involved.

While it would not suit everyone to build in this manner, there is a certain luxury that time affords so you can really achieve the result that suits your family and lifestyle without compromise.
